Garmin is the current king of the fitness tracking industry for serious athletes, but the Hammerhead Karoo is a new cycling computer that has the potential to upend the status quo. The impressively fast, versatile on-board cycling device integrates functionality of both smartphones and computers to satisfy the precise needs of cyclists.

The Hammerhead Karoo fits snugly int the center of the handlebars, and its horizontal orientation makes it easy to read even while pedaling at full speed. Its screen is made from military-grade Corning Gorilla Glass 4, meaning that it can handle spills if they happen, and its IP67 standard sealing makes it impervious to both weather and sweat.

For software, the device has onboard 3G cellular and Wi-Fi, so it can connect quickly, and it runs Android as its operating system, so it can easily harmonize with all of a cyclist's most commonly used apps.
